Your choices are basically this:

RRO spacer suspension Lift from Rocky-Road Outfitters (based in US)

Masterkit1 spacer suspension lift from Masterkit (based in Quebec, Canada)

STU'S COILS suspension lift using different coils (based in Australia)

OR

Purchase the FDII/or 2012 coils ...they seem to be around an inch taller.

BTW - The first 3 choices all give you around 2 inches of lift (give or take a little). Anything taller than that can put dangerous strain on your CV joints because of the angle they will be at....and they will likely break.

Hope this helps!

Good choice, although they all have really good reviews. I have the masterkit1 on the way now and it's supposedly the same deign as the RRO, but just thicker. The STU coils get a phenomenal review since its an actual longer coil, but ordering from Australia becomes expensive.

Do it right and get the coils from Stu. Spacers are a cheap upgrade. You'll need camber bolts for the front end alignment. You can get these at your local parts store. Then get it aligned.

Actually the first Patriot that RRO lifted was a FWD. Mine was the first 4WD. You'll be fine.

Oh! That's very cool. Just in time too as I need new front struts and strut tower bearings.

Master kit and rro are fine. And getting more lift with an fdii is always a plus.
